Using new sources - ground-breaking research in the papers of the Nuremberg prison psychiatrist and commandant, the letters and journals of prisoners, and accounts of the judges and prosecuters as they struggled through each day making compromises and steeling their convictions - Joseph Perisco retells the story of Nuremberg, combining sweeping history with psychological insight. Here are brilliant, chilling portraits of the Nazi warlords and riveting descriptions of the tensions between law and vengeance, between East and West, of the friction already present in the early stages of the Cold War.
"A vivid reconstruction of the actions of the wartime allies and the Nazi elite at Nuremberg. Persico eaily carries us into a deeper understanding of the trials."New York Newsday.
